The Hilma Roemheld range of die clamping systems has been extended with two new larger sizes of their swing sink clamps. The new clamps will provide 25 tons and 41 tons of force per cylinder. These internal clamps can be directly mounted onto the press bed or ram when die clamping is inaccessible.
The double acting swing sink clamp with a 90° swing angle, extends from below the bolster surface to clamp in a slotted pocket. This leaves the bolster clear during the die change. To help ensure safety, inductive proximity switches monitor the unclamp, change-over and clamp positions. The swing mechanism is protected with a spring-loaded overload detent and equipped with manual emergency operation.
Swing Sink Clamps are now available in 5 sizes with clamping forces from 6 tons to 41 tons. For more details on all the various sizes visit www.roemheld-usa.com, or contact Carr Lane Roemheld Mfg. Co., Fenton, MO 63026, 636-386-8022.
